I very rarely respond to requests for evaluations, but I have something to say. I always dread going into a uhaul location. It makes no difference where the store is, the service is always slow, the computer systems take forever to print contracts, there are never enough employees, and God forbid you're fourth in line... it will be AT LEAST a half hour until somebody notices you. Then, add to this that the employee behind the counter has to leave the store to check out the vehicle being rented, or check one in that's being returned. I purchased a hitch ball the other day, and the poor girl behind the counter had to OPEN THE PACKAGE to get the stock number!! Seriously? Are you aware bar codes exist? Your system of doing business is very antiquated and drastically needs updated.

Inside the back of the truck was dirty and driving the truck was horrible and dangerous....when I would push on the brakes the steering wheel jerked left and right and was hard to control. I made one trip with the truck between my home and my storage unit and was not going to risk driving it anymore. I am now stuck making aporox 10 trips in my truck compared to the 1 (maybe 2) more I could have used the U-Haul truck for...and that has made me have to pay out an extra $80 out of pocket for gas that I should not have had to do if the rental were safe to drive. Also, the sign in the back of the truck said that you could save $25 by making sure the back of the truck was clean when you return was dirty when we got it but cleaned it before WE returned it and we still didnt save $25 off of our bill for cleaning an already dirty truck. Our experience with U-Haul was terrible and a nightmare and we just wasted over $150 we couldnt afford to begin with!!!!!

One of the smoothest professional retail experiences I have had in a long time. Well done! Jim Brandimarte

I stopped at this location the Saturday before my Monday pick-up. The salesman said implied that there would be a dolly and covers on the truck and I would only be charged if I used them. I learned Monday that they would not be on the truck and I would have to rent them separately, No one explained to me verbally that I could not overfill the tank when I returned to Greensburg and that I would not be reimbursed for the excess gas. Yes, that info was highlighted on my form, but because of the excess time needed to secure the truck and my set schedule I did not have time to read the highlighted material on the form. I would strongly advice that all customers are give that information verbally when the papers are signed for the rental. Also, I highly recommend that your policy be changed to accommodate people you inadvertently put in additional fuel. I assumed I would use a half of a tank of gas in traveling from Altoona to Greensburg. I was wrong and because of that I am being penalized about $25.00 for that mistake. Your policy would punish me for not having the tank returned to the proper level, but not reimburse me for the excess gas I put in the tank. Also, the next renter could be assessed the excess amount that the previous renter had applied.

I've used U-Haul vehicles a lot over the years, and I've noticed that, without exception, the side mirrors are not even close to a usable position when I get in to drive. Someone should sit in the driver's seat and at least get the mirrors semi-adjusted, especially since they are usually almost impossible to move (electric, remote control mirrors would be awesome!) There's no way my wife could possibly get the current mirrors to move one iota. At an athletic 6'2" and 185 pounds, it takes me some effort.

Nothing. The location itself is not the problem. The company is the problem.

The staff were friendly and efficient, but the vehicle had problems. The rear gate was very difficult to operate -- had not been properly lubricated. There were enough exhaust fumes in the cabin that I had to crack the window in the middle of winter.

Please ensure the trucks are in working order. On the way from the location to my home the truck literally stopped (I barely got off the road & thank god I didn't take the highway) just because the fluids were empty. The mechanic who works for you is fantastic but again left the bottle of coolant for me... I thought it was strange.

The tank was not full when I picked up the truck and was told to fill to the level indicated on the fuel gauge. This was very hard to determine bacause the fuel level indicator fluctuated quite a bit. I think you should pick up the vehicle with a full tank of fuel then return it with a full tank.
